Hi Experts, I would like to make an ocean look with gentle waves with a map on top of it, i have tried with clouds + glass distortion but doesn't turn out too much like an ocean. What is the way to do it?

Thanks in advance!

Water drop effect and blending mode. Add the caustics effect for the look of light shining thru shallow water.

Add your map as a still.

Put the Displacement map effect on the Still.

Then add caustics to your project.

Drag the caustics to the displacement map effect.

Nice. Very nice. So beautiful in its simplicity.
